    If there’s a cake that really makes me feel all the warm and fuzzy Fall feelings…it’s carrot cake. I know what you’re thinking. What about pumpkin? Or apple? Carrot cake has all the Fall spices though, and it’s moist and so flavorful with every bite. You can add walnuts, or raisins, or not add anything at all. . . and it still turns out great! You don’t need cake flour, all purpose is just fine, and you don’t even need butter for the cake! So, without further ado, I think it’s time for an updated carrot cake recipe. I’m talking…

    Another pumpkin recipe? Why, yes, of course! It is October, after all! This one is so easy to whip up, and it’s good for you too!

These are the fluffiest, softest muffins, which feel so light as air, that they are a little too easy to eat – good thing there are only gonna be 6 of them. No one’s stopping you from making them again though, just sayin. I also dipped the muffin tops into my butterscotch sauce – and the amazing factor just doubles.  Now, for…

    Grapes and Pomegranates! The underdogs of Fall fruits, but the stars of this Cobbler! I had been meaning to make a cobbler all summer, but just ran out of time.

If you’ve been following me for a bit now, you know I LOVE my apple and pumpkin desserts. However, I wanted to go in a different direction with this recipe, and shine a light on some fruits that usually look great as…
